I don't know where most of you are looking for jobs but here in Florida, CNA in a hospital setting is almost impossible. I have been looking constantly since May and only had 2 interviews. Everyone keeps using the mantra - experience needed, 1 - 2 years. Even the LTC and rehab centers are requesting it. I also go my Phlebotomy national certification and zero luck. The schools are pumping out lots of grads but without the experience, you are not gonna get a position. I've tried all the FT,PT,Per Diem, No benefits, all shifts, everything. Personally I think the market is over saturated right now with new grads and until the retirement age staff move on, it will be slim pickings for a while.
